    The first trailer of the film arrived earlier today. I´m actually kind of disappointed - after all the hype I expected photo-realistic environments and aliens. I´m sure the action sequences, characters and the story will be great, but still....

    What do you think.

    Yeah, very disappointing. There are some good shots there, but for the most part, everything looks too animated and fake. Most of it looked like a video game.

    Well I LOVE Sigourney Weaver and the prospect of her finally winning an Oscar has me excited to see this!

    it´s James Cameron's first movie since Titanic (1997). That´s one reason for the hype. And the director promised unparalleled visual effects and believable alien characters. The expectations were probably a little bit too high....

    I just saw the 16 minutes of 3D footage in an IMAX-cinema. It's absolutely spectacular. The trailer you watched is really just a crappy 2D version of something intended to be seen in 3D.

    Certainly not photo-realistic though and still a little "cartoonish".

    ^Thanks for the heads up, i never expected it to be totally photo-realistic, even when i was reading all the hype about how its something we never seen before.

    ^ I watched the 16 minute-preview a few days ago, and these creatures are definitely the most realistic animated CG-creatures I´ve ever seen. I´m not sure I´d "do" them, though.... :lol:

    I never really like watching trailers, because i dont want to go to a movie & end up knowing what is going to happen + sometimes they put all the good bits in trailers too, so i'd rather go & watch the movie when it comes out ^_^
    Oh was that 16 min trailer that 'Avatar day' thing?, because i saw alot of people going into my local IMAX.

    These creatures are simply beautiful. I'd totally do them :p
    I'm loving the look of the monsters in the movie too.

    I'm slightly more optimistic about the movie than before.
